The first chance falls to Kings Hill, Melvin with a ball through the Deal Sports defence into Tommy who almost rounds the keeper but it was a good save by the Deal Sports keeper to keep it 0-0.
The first 20 minutes have been very back and forth with both teams having dangerous attacks and chances in the other teams boxes.
25 minutes gone and Kings Hill get the first goal, Tommy Lee Judd with the assist and Melvin with a nice mid air flick into the top left corner of the Deal Sports goal. 1-0 Kings Hill.
Kings Hill had a small blip in defence as Ryan Blake, tackles a Deal Sports attacker and the all heads across the Kings Hill box, the resulting shot was tipped over the crossbar by Sam Ribbins in goal but the chip come shot was already going over the bar.
Deal Sports have a free kick half way into the Kings Hill half he shots and it's goes wide, it was a powerful shot and with a little more accuracy it would've challenge Sam in goal.
Almost 2-0 to Kings Hill as the rain starts to fall, a clearance from the defence by Ryan Blake is ran into by Rhys who holds off the defenders and flicks the ball past the goalkeeper but it goes just wide.
Half time and Kings Hill are still 1-0 up, both teams have had chances to score but both have been unable to put the ball in the goal.
Kings Hill start the second half 1-0 up at home, currently they're on for an unbeaten start to the season with the maximum of 12 points.
Free kick to Kings Hill just outside the Deal Sports penalty box, Austin and Charlie Belcher are stood over it. The shot by Austin hits the posts and rebounds to the feet of Melvin who gets his second goal of the game just minutes into the restart.
Charlie Belcher has been taken down on the outside of the box. Austin is standing over the ball and a 4 man Deal Sports wall stands in his way. But the shot goes over and now a Deal Sports goal kick.
Rhys almost makes its 3-0 but a Deal Sports defender makes an amazing goal line clearance. Team play by Melvin who easily could've gotten his third goal of the game but opted for the team option which nearly played off.
Rice saw the Deal Sports keeper off his line and goes for an audacious attempt from inside his own half and missed by centre meters just past the post so very nearly 3-0 to Kings Hill.
After a period of possession from the kings, Rice then puts the ball into the back of the net from Lawson deep cross for the lino to rule lawson offside. Still 2 - 0 deal pined back deep into their half now.
3-0 to Kings Hill finally, we've had a good second half which has been screaming for a goal. Kane Rice crosses the ball in and Rhys gets in front of the keeper and knocks its past the keeper.
Full time whistle has gone and Kings Hill remain top of the table, get another clean sheet and look very promising for the season. 3-0 final score.
Man of the match: Dan Melvin.
